With cruise ships adding so many bells and whistles (like LED walls and ice bars) it’s easy to forget that one of the best parts of cruising is getting off the ship. In 2013, the best ports of call follow some exciting trends. Caribbean destinations might still be the most visited, but multiple new sailings offer a wide array of unique, eclectic stops in other exciting destinations. Think riverside metropolises, Down Under adventures, and explorations in the East, both Near and Far.
